So here it is.... my SECOND digital coloring project. Don't ask to see my first! HAHAHAHAHAHA! I just recently got the Wacom Bamboo Craft tablet and pen that came with Photoshop Elements 8 and DOVE into the world of digital coloring. The box arrived with EVERYTHING I needed to get started... well, except I don't have a color printer! :/ Not too big of a deal since I CLEARLY need more practice, but I'm getting there and predict that my next purchase will, in fact, be a color printer! :)
Now for the product review. So the Bamboo craft tablet is WONDERFUL!!! It came with a little tutorial to learn how to use it. It was interactive and pretty simple. The tablet ALSO came with Photoshop Elements 8 which is NOT so easy to use. Reading some reviews on Photoshop I know why. Actually, the Photoshop Elements has MANY of the components of Photoshop (the full professional version) so just a little word of advice.... prepare for a HUGE learning curve. But judging by the beauty above (remember, she's only my second one), it's TOTALLY worth the time investment!!!
Well gang, I'm off to learn a little more about the brushes and how to achieve a better blend. I might just go ahead and look up some color printer reviews while I'm at it! ;) This particular gem is going to get 100 high fives from me. I say BUY, BUY, BUY if you're interested in coloring and have been thinking of giving a digital pen a try... the Wacom Bamboo Craft is GRRRRREAT!
